Great performance at a great priceWe purchased two PENN Warfare combos for a 1,500-mile open ocean voyage taking LOVE KNOT, our 40-foot "Lucia 40" catamaran, from Annapolis, Maryland, to the Horizon Yacht Charters base in the British Virgin Islands. We hoped to catch some fish to pass the time and augment our provisions. Wow, did we! Trolling at 7-8 knots in the Gulf Stream, we caught two 30 to 34-inch mahi's which provided 4 meals of terrific grilled fish plus ceviche. Then, on our last full day of sea, trolling a 6-inch cedar about 60 miles north of St. Thomas, we hooked this 94-inch marlin. After an hour and a half struggle of jumping, skidding and diving, we were able to bring this beautiful fish on board long enough for a photo -- then released her. Pretty darn impressive for a bargain rod and reel spooled with 20-pound line! Thank you PENN for a great product!!

The ultimate flathead reel comboI bought a couple of these two weeks ago as my 320 GTI has 25-26 years on it and I wanted something close to it as I am used to it. Saw the warfare 30 combo and could not find any reason not to go with it.
Spoiled with some 50 pound big game and I caught 2 fish on one and one on the other on my first trip with them. An 18.5 pound blue, a 14 pound flathead, and a 5.5 pound flathead. These reels will do exactly what I want and they are priced reasonably. Thanks Penn!
